This year’s Award was presented at the TIA’s 2018 Capital Ideas Conference & Exhibition on April 10, 2018, at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert, California.
The nominees are reviewed and measured by their activities within their communities, including charitable giving, volunteering logistical services, providing manpower, hiring disabled or veterans, sponsoring local sporting events, supporting those undergoing severe hardships (financial or otherwise), and offering scholarships.
Choptank Transport reports that it has a corporate responsibility to give back to its community. Charitable giving has been a vital thread in the fiber of the company’s culture with organizations such as the Salvation Army and March of Dimes receiving particular attention in the last few years.
Geoff Turner, Choptank’s president, and CEO explains how honored he is to be nominated for this recent award. “Our team works exceptionally hard to provide the services our customers need and expect. To see them go the extra mile for those in our community just as passionately, for so many worthwhile causes, well, it’s truly gratifying.”
